    Lightbulb Just sold my bricked phone with Gmail accts in Google Play App

    I had S2 skyrocket hard bricked phone with my gmail accounts in the Play Store application.

    So today i sold the phone to some stranger. (since i cannot open the phone, i couldn't remove the accounts from the phone)

    after selling the phone, i changed my accounts password, added 2 step verification security.

    btw, the phone have Pattern type screen lock.

    So tell me guys, is this enough or tell me more suggestions to protect my accounts.

    Thank You

    The password change should be enough since it won't be able to connect to the play store or get new emails.

    You should not even go back to the old password. Keep the new one.

    Google will not allow you to reuse a password.
